cascading in monochrome
Gathering inspiration from contemporary R&B stalwarts like Frank Ocean and Daniel Caesar, Micah—who goes by his given name—spits laid-back bars on this succinct, dreamlike EP. At 11 minutes long, Flash Warning flits through a startling flurry of jazz samples and lazy lyricism to settle on an aesthetic entirely its own. Pop-culture references come thick and fast, whether it’s the Matrix on piano-led opener “cascading in monochrome” or Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on “tommy vercetti”. This is tongue-in-cheek balladry built for the digital age.
